Bridgit over at outofthebook89 – Thank you for tagging me. I really enjoyed it!

Find a book for each of your initials.

Allegiant Cover

A: Allegiant by Veronica Roth – I am yet to read this one and I actually have no idea
when I’ll be able to get to it. I still have a few books to get to this month and next month is NaNoWriMo so I’ll most likely only get to this in December. I recently finished Insurgent and I’m still recovering. Hopefully I’ll be posting a review of Insurgent by the end of this week.
Days of Blood and Starlight

D: Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor – This is one of my favourite trilogies. I know I say this often by Laini Taylor write so beautifully. I can’t get enough of it. I want more…

Count your age along your bookshelf – which book do you land on?

BrisingrBook number 22 on my shelf is Brisingr by Christopher Paolini. This is so fitting. I remember lugging this giant book with me on a plane when I was 16. This book went with me to Aberdeen, Scotland and kept me company when I was in Warrington. It was my main source of entertainment on the 14 hour ferry trip from Aberdeen to the Shetland Islands – which is in the middle of the North Sea – and back again. This novel has a special place in my heart.

Pick a book set in your city/state/country.

Apocalyse Now Now

Apocalypse Now Now by Charlie Human is an Urban Fantasy novel set in Cape Town.
This one got me out of a terrible reading slump and reminded me how much I love literature. It inspired me to starting reading and writing more often. I really love finding Speculative Fiction by local authors.

Pick a book that represents a destination you’d like to travel to.

Daughter of Smone and Bone Cover

Laini Taylor’s descriptions of Prague in Daughter of Smoke and Bone are magical. I would love to see Prague someday.

Pick a book that’s your favorite color.

A Court of Thorns and Roses

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas – I bought a signed copy last month. It is on my TBR list but I know I won’t get to it this month. I have an urge to drop everything and just read it because all the reviews I’ve read and watched so far have been super positive.

Which book do you have the fondest memories of?

EldestEldest by Christopher Paolini – I can’t explain it, I just get so excited when I think of this book. I think it might be the most read book on my shelf besides Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. I think it has to do with the fact that for most of the book Eragon lives with the elves and we get to know Aryah. Aryah is my all time favourite female fictional character besides Karou from DOSAB.

Which book did you have the most difficulty reading?Seraphina

Seraphina by Rachel Hartman – I am so glad I got this at the library instead of buying it. I really, really tried to like it but I found the writing problematic. Maybe my expectations were just too high…

Which book in your TBR pile will give you the biggest sense of accomplishment when you finally read it?Demon King

The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima – I just have a feeling that it is going to be an epic high fantasy series and I can’t wait to get to it.

      Same here. I marathoned the entire series two months ago. I swear every time I read this series it only gets better! Though I wish we could have seen more of Murtagh and Thorn… I really hope Christopher Paolini will write more books based in this world…

        It’s been ages since I read it, I really want to reread the entire series. Me too, I’ve heard he’s been writing a new book, so fingers crossed!
